Kitchen Cabinets and Decorative Hardware, a Perfect Pair

Kitchens have become one of the most significant rooms of the home when it comes to interior design. With so many components to consider, their versatility in function and style is a large part of what makes kitchen design so exciting!

There’s always a surprising number of decisions to make, and as the defining layer of a kitchen’s layout the cabinets you select might arguably be the most important. The options for style, size and color are just so abundant, and many kitchens need a carefully thought-out combination of cabinetry and decorative hardware to convey the perfect look.

Whether your interior taste leans more towards sleek and modern or you find yourself longing for a vintage farmhouse look, Top Knobs is here to help you find the perfect cabinet and hardware paring for your kitchen. Below, we highlight the most popular styles of cabinetry among today’s homeowners with complementing hardware that are sure to elevate your home.

Traditional

The most formal style of cabinetry, traditionally designed cabinets embody elegance and sophistication. The doors often feature raised panels with intricate woodwork. Traditional cabinets can be found in rich wood tones such as cherry, mahogany and chestnut.

Elaborate hardware in bronze and copper tones add a distinctive finishing touch to traditional cabinets. Detailed embellishments like those found on the knobs and pulls in our Somerset Collection, further enhance the finesse of traditional cabinets.

Shaker

Popular with today’s younger generation of homeowners, Shaker-style cabinets showcase a timeless design with a simple and clean look. These cabinets have a five-piece door with flat recessed panels and a thin frame and are available in just about any color.

Thanks to their versatile design, Shaker cabinets can be paired with a wide variety of hardware. For a classic look we suggest opting for simple hardware with a flat design in a subtle finish like our Brushed Satin Nickel or Polished Chrome. For a look with added interest, we suggest adding contrast to the cabinets with hardware featuring ornate details such as pieces from our Cobblestone Collection.

Contemporary

Featuring a streamlined overlay surface, flat doors and little to no details, Contemporary cabinetry lends to a modern, high-end kitchen design. While their details may be minimal Contemporary cabinets can be found in a bevy of vibrant hues to create a bold and glamorous look.

When selecting decorative hardware for contemporary cabinets, we suggest maintaining their sleek design with tab pulls from our  Europa Series or Minetta Series in on-trend finishes like Flat Black, Ash Gray or Honey Bronze.

Glass-Front

Meant to be paired with traditional styled solid cabinetry, glass-front cabinets are a great way to make a statement in the kitchen. Generally used as upper cabinets, they serve as a functional place to show off your personal style and display glassware, bowls, vases, cookbooks and more.

For this style of cabinetry, we love a matching look and recommend paring with hardware inspired by glass. The soft delicate details of our Emerald Crystal knobs or a selection from our Crystals Collection, complements the refined design present in glass-font cabinets.

Farmhouse

A modern take on traditional design, farmhouse cabinets feature charming characteristics with rustic influences. Often made from reclaimed materials such as shiplap and beadboard Farmhouse cabinetry are almost always painted white or a soft neutral shade and highlights the natural textures found in wood.

Farmhouse cabinets are best adorned with bold hardware that makes a statement. Hardware like the cup pulls from our Channing Series, knobs from our  Kingsbridge Series and pulls from our Arendal Series in finishes like Flat Black and Tuscan Bronze add to the allure of a vintage farmhouse design.

A Ponte Verde, Florida Kitchen Gets a Costal Makeover with the Help of Top Knobs

A true interior visionary, Donna Mancini, of Donna Mancini Interiors & Flooring, works meticulously to provide her clients with exceptional design solutions. From consultation to project execution, Mancini has a well-developed understanding and appreciation for beautiful and functional spaces, and the emotions they evoke.

“My background is quite varied with over 30 years of experience in real estate, business, retail sales management, and interior design. Everything I’ve learned over the years has enabled me to bring a unique perspective and skill set to our current business.”

In her latest project, Donna Mancini deployed her talents to update a dysfunctional kitchen for a Ponte Verde, Florida couple who have a strong love of entertaining and cooking for family and friends.

Mancini began the renovation by eliminating two prep islands that did not offer much usable surface space and prevented the kitchen from its full functional potential. After removing both islands, Mancini created one large island that provided more seating, ample surface space and additional storage for her client’s small appliances.

Along the perimeter of the kitchen, Mancini removed the microwave above the stove and opted for a new range hood. The microwave was moved into a much more accessible and convenient location in the lower cabinets. This small change allowed for the addition of upper-stacked cabinetry where the homeowners could showcase their collection of home décor items.

With a new floor plan in place, Donna Mancini began her work refreshing the aesthetic of the kitchen to tie in with the costal décor of the rest of her client’s home. She relied upon her expertise and knowledge of current design trends and new products to lighten up the kitchen’s color palette and brought in texture and warmth with Top Knobs Ascendra pulls in Honey Bronze.

“I’m loving the warm golds, bronzes, and champagnes that are back in a big way,” says Mancini. “We loved the style of the Ascendra pulls for this kitchen! The lines are soft but clean, and the base provided just enough substance while remaining classic and refined. The look we wanted to achieve was coastal-inspired transitional and we thought this choice was perfect.”

Paired with Gray Mist colored cabinets, the Honey Bronze finish added the perfect amount of sophistication for a design Mancini’s clients are now proud to show off to family and friends.

Thank you, Donna Mancini, for choosing Top Knobs and sharing your project with us! For more design inspiration from Donna Mancini Interiors & Flooring, be sure to follow along on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

Mixing metals can be a fun experiment in the bedroom but it does require some planning and structure. Bedrooms are a place for relaxation and their design should never be overwhelming. We advise choosing a dominant metal for your furniture then introducing a second metal subtly through accessories and accent pieces. We recommend incorporating no more than two metals in the bedroom for a cohesive look.

Bathrooms used to be a space reserved for chrome and nickel finishes. With brass and bronze leading the finish trend this year, the bathroom has become the ideal spot to harmonize warm and cool tones. This look requires a thoughtful balance that shifts away from the traditional matchy look. Try opting for a cool silver tone as the base for your plumbing and cabinetry hardware and pairing it with warm bronze accents and bath accessories for a style will co-exist.
